Worlds have once again collided in the viral tale of the shrimp cereal guy.

It’s been well-established that Jensen Karp, 41, the guy who claims to have gotten a spoonful of sugary shrimp tails in his box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, is, in fact, the spouse of “Boy Meets World” star Danielle Fishel, 39, a k a Topanga.

Now, new details of Karp’s connections have emerged from perhaps one of the unlikeliest of people: Chance the Rapper.

In a tweet shared on Wednesday, the Chicago rapper let fans in on a “fun fact.”

“Fun fact: the Cinnamon Toast Crunch shrimp guy gave me 5 racks to shoot a video back when I still had a nose ring,” wrote Chance, 27. A clip posted alongside the tweet shows both men briefly meeting as Karp hands the videographer-cum-rapper a check for $5,000.

But the crossover between the Karp and the hip-hop hero doesn’t end there as it’s also been revealed that the cereal-loving Hollywood hubby has had his fair share of showbiz stints — as rapper Hot Karl.

Indeed, as his 2016 memoir “Kanye West Owes Me $300 (and other true stories from a white rapper who ALMOST made it big)” indicates, Karp’s idiosyncratic career has seen collaborations with a number of lauded hip-hop artists, including West, Redman, and Fabolous.

At just 11-years-old, Karp signed onto Ice-T’s Rhyme Syndicate as a promising young emcee. As a teenager, the rapper enrolled in a freestyle competition hosted by Los Angeles’ Power 106 FM, outlasting a record-breaking 45 days in the competition before getting noticed by Interscope Records, which reportedly signed Hot Karl to a million dollar record deal.

Unfortunately, his debut album, “Your Housekeeper Hates You,” featuring a number of guest appearances by well-known hip-hop artists of the time, was never released commercially, and Karp soon left Interscope.

Nevertheless, fame awaited at the bottom of a Cinnamon Toast Crunch box.
